African-American Stories - Universal Themes

image13

It is an honor to capture and retell rich African-American stories that are rarely  told. I am intrigued by the history of the numbers racket ran by organized groups of African-American men and women who used their resources from street numbers to empower their communities. It is my goal to show the good and bad side of the rackets in a way that teaches OUR HISTORY and entertains. --Anetria Cole
